, the stock would be lower and i question the dividend. i don't like darden on a bounce. exit. bob in connecticut, please, bob? >> caller: yes, jim. first of all, let me say boo-yah from connecticut. and, you know, a few months ago i bought a keurig coffee machine. i was so impressed, i bought the stock, which was green mountain, i paid $57 for it. my question to you is, since it's gone down so much, started to come back up, should i hold on to it? >> i'm not -- i happen to be a fan of the keurig too, but unlike victor and the old ad, he was such a fan of realmington, he bought the company. i don't want to by green mountain. it's got the red flag, the red flag of my friend herb greenberg, and when he raises issues, i don't go there. herb tells me where battlegrounds are, and when it comes to a battleground, i'd rather eat a cold corn dog. well, check that. >>> i like to revisit stocks i talk about on "mad money," and in this case like hillshire, i think it needs more time, this is a long-term turn-around story. i suggest getting it on weakness, listen, this tastes better than the d
, bob, it's a fantasy. all of this goldilocks stuff is a fantasy. you cannot get strong growth with rising taxes and lower spending. that's not going to happen. you cannot have unlimited stimulus that is not going to cause inflation. that's just a fantasy. so there's a real fight going on. none the less, have you noticed, gold being sold, buying the euro, it seems a weird trade going on here affecting the markets. this was going on yesterday as well. this may have to do with the yen. the yen is hitting new lows against the dollar. it's hitting new lows against the euro. have you seen what's going on with the japanese elections? the new prime minister told the bank of japan we want more stimulus. guess who's meeting thursday? the bank of japan. japan's exports fall for the sixth straight month. you are going to see the bank of japan on thursday announce new stimulus measures. you're going to see efforts to weaken the yen. it's going to get even weaker. that is the old yen carry trade. that may be where some of this money is coming from to do the odd little trades that seem to be
and bob dole, our former colleague, literally were wounded at about the same time in europe and were in the same hospital recovering from tremendously serious wounds. senator inouye of course was awarded the congressional medal of honor for that. senator pryor was telling a story that's when senator inouye was finally elected to congress he rode senator dole aide notes that said, i am here. where are you? because both of them when they were recovering from their war wounds had determined that one day they wanted to serve in the united states congress and inouye got here first. a few years ago, senator inouye and senator ted stevens invited a number of us to go with them to china. it was quite an experience. senator stevens, of course another world war ii veteran, had flown the first cargo plane into what was then the king in 1944 and of course senator inouye was well regarded in china for that service. so the group of senators, there must have been a dozen of us from both parties, got more time with mr. hu and mr. wu the one and two leaders of china than almost the present of the uni
on the "closing bell." bob, these projections... they're... optimistic. productivity up, costs down, time to market reduced... those are good things. upstairs, they will see fantasy. not fantasy... logistics. ups came in, analyzed our supply chain, inventory systems... ups? ups. not fantasy? who would have thought? i did. we did, bob. we did. got it. try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. just a few minutes before we close out session, the volatility index is up better that be 10%. take a look. what does this tell you in the investor we bring into the conversation right now michael pento along with brian beleskey from bmo capital market. thanks so much for joining us. michael, what's your take on this volatility index? >> it's been a lousy investment. you can't buy volatility, you have to buy the vxx and like t
in 2008. was he the right choice this year, bob? >> well, if you go by their criteria of the most influence in the world of better or worse, can you make your argument. my argument for person of the year would be the central bankers of the world. from bernanke to the people at ecb, all the way to the bank of japan. those people had the biggest impact -- >> you are a finance guy. god bless you. >> i'm a little nerdy. sorry about that. >> we should do our own cnbc show. >> it is present company excluded. >> good call, john? >> no. really boring. really safe. not a very good call at all. he agree with bob here. absolutely. the central banker was the person of the year, same way the personal computer was years ago and you were, you know, as they put up a mirror, the most influential people this year were central bankers from japan to the united states to europe to mark carnie pulled out of canada to be uk central banker. that's the big story. >> my people of the year would have been the teachers and students of sandy hook elementary. i think they have changed america forever. sue? >>
? who would have thought? i did. we did, bob. we did. got it. to the best vacation sp(all) the gulf! it doesn't matter which of our great states folks visit. mississippi, alabama, louisiana or florida, they're gonna love it. shaul, your alabama hospitality is incredible. thanks, karen. love your mississippi outdoors. i vote for your florida beaches, dawn. bill, this louisiana seafood is delicious. we're having such a great year on the gulf, we've decided to put aside our rivalry. now is the perfect time to visit anyone of our states. the beaches and waters couldn't be more beautiful. take a boat ride, go fishing or just lay in the sun. we've got coastline to explore and wildlife to photograph. and there's world class dining with our world famous seafood. so for a great vacation this year, come to the gulf. its all fabulous but i give florida the edge. right after mississippi. you mean alabama. say louisiana or there's no dessert. this invitation is brought to you by bp and all of us who call the gulf home. >>> good evening bertha. >> good evening. hopefully it will be averted. the d
the tremendous service and career of bob morton. a 22-year veteran of the washington state legislature who recently announced that he was going to be retiring at the end of the year. he was first elected to the house in 1990 and then he was appointed to the senate where he currently represents the seventh district, including stevens, and parts of spokane county. he owned a small logging business and ran cattle while also preaching at his local church and serving the community. but bob is not just an outstanding legislator for eastern washington, he's also a close friend. a mentor and the reason that i got into politics and public service in the first place. as an elected official i've worked with him on countless issues and his advice and friendship has been invaluable. he's recognized for his leadership and knowledge, good forest management, no one knows western water law better than bob and he's participated in most of the negotiations over washington water law. bob and his wife linda have five children, 11 grandchildren and i know they're looking forward to spending more time with them
seat in all of this. what can you tell us. >> reporter: as bob pisani just mentioned the discussion today is about that plan "b" that speaker boehner is offering to only raise taxes on million dollar incomes and do nothing on spending cuts until next year. the president came out into the white house briefing room said, and after talking about gun control made the argument in response to questions that they have narrowed their differences too much to walk away from negotiations now. >> i've said i'm willing to make some cuts what. separates is probably a few hundred billion dollars. the idea that we would put our economy at risk because you can't bridge that gap doesn't make a lot of sense. >> that wasn't persuasive at least publicly to house speaker boehner who faces a lot of resistance to his caucus on million dollar incomes or 400,000 or 250,000 income. he could pass plan "b" and put the ball right back in the president's lap. >> tomorrow the house will pass legislation to make permanent tax relief for nearly every american, 99.81% of the american people. then the president will h
the president is hopeful a fiscal cliff you will get done in time, mayor bob buckhorn is concerned at how higher taxes will affect the tourism throughout the state. this has an interesting twist. we know that local mayors across the country are worried about the fiscal cliff deal. i think this is one that not a lot of people are talking about. >> melissa, what i do think is if this tax bill is not passed and middle-class folks do not get sick -- do not get the tax exemptions that they normally get, my concern is not raising taxes on the 2% and it is even much less. the 98% of the people who need those middle-class taxes extended are the people that i represent and those of the people traveling to florida for vacation. melissa: i hear you, but you represent and that of those other folks also. there are a lot of wealthy people that live in the tampa bay area and in gorgeous homes on the gulf coast area. you are real estate market has been among those of the most deep rust. why would you want to raise taxes on your wealthy citizens either? >> i think it is a fairness issue. it is a moral issue. the

efficiency. so we were able, bob teets before me begin that effort, achieved about $150 billion in savings. we've added about 60 to 70 billion on top of that in terms of further efficiencies. we'll continue to reveal for greater efficiencies can be achieved. right now i ask that question when i first became secretary. you know, what is the role of the service secretary vis-À-vis the service chief? the reality is there is an important role for them because they are civilians. civilians are involved in providing policy in their areas. they also have to negotiate a lot of the politics of capitol hill. so there's an important role for them to play in terms of a particular service. having said that, there are a lot of other places where we can achieve savings in the pentagon and we will. >> as the defense department does the downsizing services committee consider cuts to the number flag and general officers? >> again, i think that's part and parcel as he do force reduction. as i said, we are going to be reducing the force structure in the army to 490,000. the reduced the marines as well and i
